Product Details


Product Description

Once described as "stoner pop", Miami quartet TORCHE could just as awkwardly be called "doom pop" or "thunder rock"... but what all these clumsy words boil down to is simultaneously one of the catchiest AND heaviest bands to ever grace the worlds of metal, indie and underground music in general. Sound like hyperbole? TORCHE actually has their own patented "bomb string" tuning which is literally unparalleled in heavy music (past or present) and they use it liberally on this, their self-titled debut full-length album. Easily the heaviest record Robotic Empire has released to date, never has a "metal" album existed quite like the mind-blowing debut release from TORCHE. Hinted at by members' former group FLOOR, truly anthemic, triumphant and absolutely massive heavy metal has never been this undeniably catchy! With gloriously sung, harmonized and soaring vocal arrangements accompanying the most monolithic riffs of modern times, TORCHE reaches to push the envelope and then engulfs it in flames. Call it "stoner pop" or "exquisite brutality"... call it whatever you want. In the end, TORCHE are still a major force to fuck with, and undeniable leaders of an incredible new style of heavy music. This is the deluxe, fully re-mixed and re-mastered edition of TORCHE's debut album... which has been completely reworked from the ground up due to the band's overall dissatisfaction with the original release. This new version is a much more accurate representation of the band with an even heavier (and clearer) mix than the original.

IN THE TOP TEN FOR 2005 SO FAR!!! Aug. 22 2005
By punkgato - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
It's pretty dumb that this has been out for months and no one has reviewed it yet! Now that I have that off my chest...Any fan of heavy rock from Sabbath to Qotsa to Helmet to Sunn 0))) needs to own this disc now! Those familiar with Steve's former act FLOOR should know what to expect from this, but it's got alot more going on than the aforementioned. Guitars and bass tuned to shuttle launch, giant sounding drums, and early Helmet styled vocals...Stoner pop? Call it whatever you like, this album will not disappoint fans of creative heavy music, with tons of melodies that you would'nt expect from such a ridiculously heavy act! Buy this album now or miss out on one of the best of 2005 so far!!!

Gimme More TORCHE!!! \m/! Nov. 9 2005
By Six - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Clocking in at only about 30 minutes, this will leave you Foaming at the mouth for way more! absolutely what I needed in my ears right now, and for my personal taste's, right up my alley. To put it roughly, imagine if Paige Hamilton was KYUSS' lead singer... But even that cream dream does it no justice... This is definitely an album that needs to be heard, and even the most ADD'd out fans of Doom, Metal, Rock, Sludge can fit 30 minutes of Sonic bliss in their time budgets... Seriously, TORCH rocks!! \m/.

Great, fairly undiscovered metal April 9 2006
By Matthew Rich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
There were show fliers up for a band called Torche at my college (Buffalo State) that were really cool with flaming whales falling from the sky onto houses. They were bizarre and screen printed, so I took one and the same day was given a copy of this CD while cleaning out a back room at the college radio station. I popped it in and listened to the first song. I was like "sabbath!" I expected this because of the promotion company being named after sabbath. Then I listened to the rest of the CD later and thought "helmet!" This is a kick ass CD. It isn't the best modern metal band on earth, but anyone into any kind of fairly slow paced (though they do move around) stoner metal influenced more by sabbath than maiden, this is a great disk to pick up. I only wish I would have had enough money to go to the show, which is in 2 days. Damn!
TORCHE is amazing. Feb. 14 2008
By Trevor D. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
TORCHE is one of the best bands I've heard in a long time. This album is perfect for what I've been looking for. The first album was good, but the poppy vocals threw me off to begin, but now I love them. In Return brought less of the vocals to induce a more doomy and trance-inducing feel, almost in a Neurosis kind of way.

A MUST BUY.

Seriously.
